Do any of my readers have a bucket list?   I am sure that you do, since nearly everyone does.  Some would be gratifying and some, like mine, will be outrageous and animated.   Of course, like most of you, I have places I long to visit, like Paris, Ireland, New York, and to be served afternoon tea at The Savoy, along with its...

My husband and I have traveled to several states and out of the country a few times.  Every time we go where people do not know me he always tells me, “Let me do the talking, okay?” He does not say it because I am illiterate but because I have such a notable Mississippi twang that nobody understands me.   Well, I am...

As I sit here in front of my computer to write my column for this week, my mind wanders to all the things in my memory reservoirs. My mind and my direction this week has been trained to remembrances of the past year. 2013 – Just to say the numbers reminds us of unlucky 13?   I, for one, have never really believed in luck. I...
